Honestly, what should one expect from him? I would think he would bounce back from last year's shoulder-injury-induced slump, but I have no idea.

What do YOU think?

This is one of those where the answer is "who knows". If you take Ensberg, you have to accept that he is high risk and could be really good or crappy like last year. Personally, I don't like to roll the dice with these type of guys.

I'm leaning towards him regaining some 2005 form, I mean pre-shoulder injury he was lighting it up - if he's indeed 100% healthy (which I believe to be his problem last season) I see no reason why 30HRs, 275BA would be out of the question.

From Rotoworld:
Morgan Ensberg hit his third homer of the spring Friday in the Astros' 4-3 defeat of the Yankees.

Ensberg has added to his job security by batting .387/.457/.742 in 31 at-bats. Because manager Phil Garner has been so quick to bench him in the past, it'd still be risky to go to $15 or beyond on him in NL-only leagues. However, he could be a fine mixed-league third baseman at a bargain price.Mar. 16 - 5:22 pm et

Might be a sleeper in auction leagues but not on Yahoo H2H and Roto.
He is listed at 145, which is way too early to take a chance on him.
And he is surrounded by SPs like Rich Harden, Rich Hill, Erwin Santana, or OFs like Burrell and Francouer.
He wont be on any of my teams.

I am starting to warm up to him for 2007.
His shoulder cost him last year.
This spring he's been looking real good... .351AVG 3HR 8RBI 4BB 7K.
He has Lee in front of him, which should net extra RBI opportunities.
If you look at his graphs, from FanGraphs, he is up and down, but last year would've broken the trend had it not been for his injury.
I think this year he bats close to .280, 30HR, 90-100 RBI.
I am going to take a chance on him and those stats coming from a back-up 3B or UTIL player...."NICE."

In the league Im in Harden went #105
Francoeur #110
Teahen #125
R Hill #131
E Santana #137

and Ensberg went #195. Right where he belongs.

Or it might be that my league is just too competetive?

recent rumors say that phil is planning on putting him 2nd in the lineup because of the number of walks he drew last year. expect his numbers to go way up if this happens because pitchers will pitch to him instead of berkman/lee, plus he knows how to take walks (sometimes takes to many walks, imo).

the story is somwhere on the astros website http://www.astros.com
